If anything he is totally predictable. His play book is about 1/4 inch thick. Double spaced, one side of the page only.

So about 1/4” thicker than your half page?

that is one of the absolutely hilarious side effects to come out of all of this ,when trump got elected pence scared the bejesus out of them now they are almost frothing at the mouth to put in "president pence" you know a guy who wants to use conversion therapy on gays (something trump hasn't said he wanted to do) crush roe v wade (trump may pander to his base on this issue but i dont think he gives a damn) has rallied against women in the military saying Mulan of all things proved it was a bad idea,in 2000s said smoking does not kill you (lol im a smoker and it absolutely will kill me some day) ,wants to take money for aids research and invest it into gay conversion therapy ,in 2006 claimed that same sex marriage would lead to the fall of society(lol) in 2011 wanted to shut down the government unless PP was de-funded,wanted a bill to change the language of abortion laws to only provide abortion funding in cases of "forcible rape" ,when he was govenor in indiana in 2016 he passed a religous freedom bill designed to let people discriminate against the LGBTQ populations.

that is how bad trump has gotten under the democrats skin as that's who they would rather have president then trump despite the fact pence seems to stand for literally everything they stand against. Trump has been living rent free in their brains since even before he was elected and it seems like they wake up every day miserable that 3 years of investigations has turned up jack squat on trump him self in that time

a reply to: operation mindcrime lol sure they never have...... its almost as if a country as old as china is shouldn't speak in such absolutes as they fiddled with all kinds of elections before america was even a nation but more on topic to interfearing with us elections its almost as if no one can remember back to 1996

The 1996 United States campaign finance controversy was an alleged effort by the People's Republic of China to influence domestic American politics prior to and during the Clinton administration and also involved the fund-raising practices of the administration itself. While questions regarding the U.S. Democratic Party's fund-raising activities first arose over a Los Angeles Times article published on September 21, 1996,[1] China's alleged role in the affair first gained public attention when Bob Woodward and Brian Duffy of The Washington Post published a story stating that a United States Department of Justice investigation into the fund-raising activities had uncovered evidence that agents of China sought to direct contributions from foreign sources to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) before the 1996 presidential campaign. The journalists wrote that intelligence information had shown the Chinese embassy in Washington, D.C. was used for coordinating contributions to the DNC[2] in violation of United States law forbidding non-American citizens or non-permanent residents from giving monetary donations to United States politicians and political parties. A Republican investigator of the controversy stated the Chinese plan targeted both presidential and congressional United States elections, while Democratic Senators said the evidence showed the Chinese targeted only congressional elections. The government of the People's Republic of China denied all accusations.
see that last line it makes it extra ironic dems didnt care about election interference because hey it was just Congressional elections so hey guys dont look at this its fine.

also from same wikipedia link

ah-Lin "Charlie" Trie The most significant activity by Yah-Lin "Charlie" Trie was a $450,000 attempted donation from him to Clinton's legal defense fund (for his impeachment trials) which Trie allegedly delivered in two envelopes each containing several checks and money orders. The fund immediately rejected $70,000 and deposited the remainder, but ordered an investigation of the source. The investigation found that some of the money orders were made out in different names but with the same handwriting, and sequentially numbered. The fund then rejected the donation entirely, and allegedly returned the deposited funds two months after the initial contribution.[6] Born in Taiwan, Trie emigrated to the U.S. in 1974. He eventually became an American citizen and co-owner of a restaurant in Little Rock, Arkansas. The 1997 special investigation describes Trie as having attempted to develop an international trading business (Daihatsu International Trading Corporation), having maintained or accessed accounts in Little Rock and Washington, D.C. into which Macau-based real estate businessman Ng Lap Seng wired >$1M USD from Macau and Hong Kong accounts, and as having never succeeded in the trading business (based on bank and tax records indicating substantive income only from Ng).[7][page needed] In Little Rock, Trie befriended Clinton, then governor of Arkansas. In addition to the attempted donation to Clinton's defense fund, Trie and his immediate family donated $220,000 to the DNC which was also later returned.[7][page needed] Immediately after the donation to Clinton's defense fund, Trie sent a letter to President Clinton that expressed concern about America's intervention in tensions arising from China's military exercises being conducted near Taiwan. Trie told the President in his letter that war with China was a possibility should U.S. intervention continue: [O]nce the hard parties of the Chinese military incline to grasp U.S. involvement as foreign intervention, is [sic] U.S. ready to face such [a] challenge[?]... [I]t is highly possible for China to launch real war based on its past behavior in [sic] Sino-Vietnam War and Zhen Bao Tao war with Russia. (Charlie Trie, letter to President Clinton, March 21, 1996)."[7][page needed] After Congressional investigations turned to Trie in late 1996, he left the country for China.[7][page needed] Trie returned to the U.S. in 1998 and was convicted and sentenced to three years' probation and four months' home detention for violating federal campaign finance laws by making political contributions in someone else's name and for causing a false statement to be made to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).[8]
so yeah about that they never interfered with us elections then why did he get convicted? extra funny as he was donating to bill clinton's impeachment defense but its not like they were donating in hopes of a democratic canidate would be more favorable to them then a possible repbulican one.......oh wait they did just that

Between 1994 and 1996, Chung donated $366,000 to the DNC. Once the truth of this situation was revealed to the public, all of the money was allegedly returned. Chung told federal investigators that $35,000 of the money he donated came from Liu Chaoying and, in turn, China's military intelligence.[9] Specifically, Chung testified under oath to the U.S. House Committee investigating the issue in May 1999 that he was introduced to Chinese Gen. Ji Shengde, then the head of Chinese military intelligence, by Liu Chaoying. Chung said that Ji told him: "We like your president very much. We would like to see him reelect [sic]. I will give you 300,000 U.S. dollars. You can give it to the president and the Democrat [sic] Party."[12] Both Liu and the Chinese government denied the claims.[13] Chung was eventually sentenced to five years' probation and community service following an agreement to plea guilty to bank fraud, tax evasion, and two misdemeanor counts of conspiring to violate election law.[14] Chung asserts that, after his guilty plea, the Chinese government attempted to assassinate him with "hit squads" three times, but the efforts were foiled by the FBI.[15] On February 23, 2017, it was revealed that Chung, fearing for his life, had given secret testimony in a recorded video after his FBI protection was rescinded. The video was obtained by Doug Wead for his book Game of Thorns.[16]
dems like to rail about all the muller convictions but it seems we got about as many out of this investigation as they did

but wait there is more! its not like republicans are accused of using intelligence community to sway elections like the chinese did for the dems

An unclassified U.S. Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs report issued in 1998 stated that both James Riady and his father Mochtar had "had a long-term relationship with a Chinese intelligence agency." According to journalist Bob Woodward, details of the relationship came from highly classified intelligence information supplied to the committee by both the CIA and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).[22] The most well-known of John Huang's fund-raisers involved Vice President Al Gore, Maria Hsia, and the Hsi Lai Buddhist Temple in California.
but yeah sure those Chinese surely not attempting to influence anything.

I have a very stupid question

How did Hunter Biden pass his drug screen to get the Job at Burisma

Oh right the substance he abuses doesn't stay in the system long, I forgot.

still it does seem odd that less than 90 days after a conviction he got such an awesome paying job

I mean the military kicked him out in October and he was hired when in 2014??

December, November..

Ok nothing weird there right???????

do appreciate your consistency with sticking to your "Obama was a messiah, Orange man bad" narrative

You cant argue with truth.
But I never said Obama was the messiah.. Unlike CWM who proclaimed "TRUMP IS THE CHOSEN ONE".

I don't indulge in such fantasie about living people.

But again, this thread is not about Obama even though you keep trying to make it that. But thats because you cant defend what trump is doing. So derail the thread you cant handle.

To be fair, it seems like the Democrats want to make this all about Biden. The Presidents phone transcript pointed out quite clearly that Trump was interested in rooting out foriegn power influence in our elections. Completing Past investigations that were too biased to follow where the evidence actually led them.

It is a quagmire for sure. Biden is not the main focus but definitely a perfect key into the real corruption that was ongoing to make it possible for him to get Hunter on the inside loops. Trump administration knows that Biden is just an old fool, and apparently, the Dems do too and that is what scares them.

see, in America, before geting a JOB, you have to pass a drug screen

Unless you are in Politics, then it's "invasion of Privacy".

Isn't that funny?

you can be the president of the USA, smoke dope and snort drugs all you want.

However, to pay taxes, you have to take a drug test.

Funny how that works huh?

So Democrats have used foreign powers to "investigate" and hate it when Trump simply suggests it 😎🎱

... Democrats have already PROVED to HAVE PAID foreign
powers to muckrake for them-- because our laws kind of
frown on taxpayer money being used to weaponize OUR OWN
intelligence assets for the hit job.
Well, covertly might be an option too if you get the right front -
zombie to cover it all up later.

Maybe the Dems are finding out how much weight is building up on
that other side of the scale... kind of like arm wrestling a bear trap.

The Cask of Amontillados walls keep closing in on Donald "Fortunato" Trump as now Mitt Romney and Tucker Carlson have turned their backs on him because of the Ukraine scandal.

News is coming out that the Trump administration had similar conversations with China, who knows how many other governments he has implored to help taking out his political rivals? Time will tell.

Trump's latest defense for his Machiavellian behind the scenes schemes are that his bargaining techniques had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with going after corruption. Someone should really tell Trump about the fifth amendment and to stop incriminating himself.

Trump continues to use vulgarity to address his opponents and continues to turn the White House and his Twitter account into a truck stop. I never would have thought Tucker Carlson would turn on Trump it's only a matter of time for another profanity-laced tweet is directed at him this time. Before you know it more and more people will be jumping off the Republican ship quicker than the Titanic. Sad.

Why are you so against ending government corruption?

Why do you only want to investigate some government corruption?

Trump is literally the most vetted President in the history of this country.

2nd line

Hey I've got an idea. Since it's just about corruption, how about we make a deal.

We investigate Donald Trump and his myriad of accusations first, and if found guilty, we impeach and prosecute him. Then we can go after Joe Biden.

If you're really just about investigating corruption, then it's only logical to start with the people who are currently running the government. Afterwards, we can look at people like Biden who are candidates to run the government.

If it's just about corruption, surely you don't have any problem with that..

The thing they want to investigate is the conversation President Trump had with the Ukrainian president right? Well in case you missed it, President Trump released the entire un-redacted unedited conversation. What in it have you or anyone else found to be illegal activity conducted by President Trump?

Also, why do you suppose we don't have the resources to investigate multiple people at once? Why do you have a problem investigating Biden right now?

Why are you so passionate about defending a group of individuals that pretty much want to remove the constitution, freedom and liberty..?

Interestingly enough the higher up the ladder I go when it comes to career, the less drug testing is done. I haven't had one in a few years in fact, I don't know of a consulting firm that does drug test people. I've seen clients where they have had that as a requirement for doing business, and if you know you won't pass the test you just tell the person in charge of that client and you get moved to another client. As long as you don't bring it to work or show up out of your mind, no one really cares.
